benghazi say tanks are looming closer to the city center right now. some people are using bed frames to make roadblocks. others are collecting bottles to make gasoline bombs. all of this comes as secretary of state hillary clinton meets with leaders. military action could happen hours after those talks. we're waiting for word on that. this is all of course after president obama delivered an ultimatum to gadhafi yesterday following the u.n. security council's passage of a resolution authorizing airstrikes against libya. obama says all attacks against civilians must stop immediately and that gadhafi must pull his forces back from four key cities, including benghazi. also, reestablish water, electricity, and gas supplies to all of those areas. >> these terms are not subject to negotiation. if gadhafi does not comply with the resolution, the international community will impose consequences. and a resolution will be enforced through military action. >> right now, u.s. and allied war ships are stationed off the coast of libya, ready to launch cruise missiles that would destroy gadhafi's comma
